Re: The future of West Adelaide.

You can read between the lines with this report. Big Phil, try and not ask a question with this statement if you can refrain from that sport for this .
What are you on about, now?

I think it's very sensitive this story and doesn't need constant questionning on why a comment has been made by posters. Thanks.
I couldn't agree more, regarding the sensitivities surrounding the situation...

Now...

If you could just point out where I have questioned a comment being made on this topic, let alone constant questioning, thanks?


Personally as a member of the club i don't care greatly about the sensitivities of the situation.

A former employee has allegedly taken a large amount of money from the club. I don't see how the Police can't be involved in this.

I am certain that if it were a bar person that did this, there wouldn't be any hesitation, in involving the Police in dealing with it even if the same sensitivities were involved.

Those sensitivities or the money allegedly being paid back don't IMO mean the club shouldn't be taking action against the individual. If what has been reported is true then a criminal offence took place and the person/people responsible should be made accountable for their actions.

JAS

It was about a year ago today that many truly caring, loving people, found out that Jacqueline Ann Schwier (JAS) had passed away.

Despite all the hours of painstaking moderation this Angel gave this site, and others, there are still a few remaining ‘Arseholes’ who should hang their heads in shame.

Those who still love this utterly gorgeous human being will always remember that she only sought to serve, honestly and fairly, just as she had in the ‘Falklands War’. How could anyone treat such a beautiful person so badly? Luckily, there were only a few f**kwits who treated this Angel unfairly. Fortunately, those who chose to ridicule, torture or upset JAS in the year of her death are a pathetic minority, way beyond belief & contempt. Good Aussies, should take a moment to remember this brave and unselfish woman, who, with complete and utter dedication, fought terminal cancer, silently, bravely, and tragically, on her own.

Thank you for just being you JAS.

Good and decent people will always love you and remember you.

I luv you Jax, and always will.

Re: The future of West Adelaide.

Press release from Westies


Following investigations by the Club in mid-2013, a former employee of the Club admitted to the unauthorised removal of a significant amount of Club funds. Restitution has been offered, and accepted by the Club, for this amount.
The Board subsequently appointed an experienced Chartered Accountant to undertake an investigation to determine whether this was, in fact, the material extent of the apparent fraudulent activity.
An extensive review of the Club’s accounting records, bank accounts and transactions involving the former employee was completed in early January 2014.
The investigation resulted in discovery of a number of further questionable transactions and potential misappropriations of funds which were reported to, and considered by, the full Board of the Club.
Upon review of this report by the former employee, a further amount of misappropriation has been admitted. Restitution has been offered, and accepted by the Club, for this amount.
The maximum recovery of funds for the benefit of the Club has been considered to be of prime importance and this matter has been an issue of serious priority for the Board, together with taking steps to tighten administrative procedures and controls to prevent the reoccurrence of such a situation in the future.
The matter has absorbed a huge amount of the Club’s resources and we look forward to a more positive and productive application of those resources with the finalisation of this matter.

Hopefully all over now. Time to move forward

"We've worked out you stole more"

"Yep, you want it back?"

"Yep."

*Surely in an official statement where guilt is admitted, the need for "allegedly" is no longer required.

Surely the line he paid it back that's good enough isn't good enough.

AGM is going to be interesting.

Re: Crows Disgrace

Adelaide Crows CEO Steven Trigg said the opening AFL game at the redeveloped Adelaide Oval was the “perfect opportunity” to celebrate South Australian football.

“This is about our deep respect and admiration for South Australian football and all those who have been involved,” Trigg said.

“Football has been played at Adelaide Oval for more than 140 years, it was where the game evolved and grew into the State’s biggest sport.

“As we start an exciting new era at Adelaide Oval, we also wanted to do something that makes a statement underlining our appreciation for the past.

“The Adelaide Football Club was created by the SANFL as the team for all South Australians in 1990 and we are extremely proud of that heritage.

“Wearing the guernsey will be a central part of our plans for the game, which is to remember and highlight the history of the SANFL and its clubs.”

SANFL executive commissioner Leigh Whicker said the commemorative guernsey was “fitting” for football’s return to Adelaide Oval.

“The SANFL is delighted that the Adelaide Football Club will honour its heritage in round two of the AFL Premiership Season,” he said. “The guernsey reflects the many hard working and passionate people, as well as all the SANFL clubs, that have built the Crows into such a significant part of the South Australian football landscape.

“At a time of celebration, when football returns to the Adelaide Oval, it is fitting that this nationally recognised guernsey is on display.”

Re: Channel 7 announced by SANFL as preferred telecast partn

As a West Adelaide fan I'm just wondering how long it will take 7 to televise one of our games. I know Westies aren't travelling to well (though we have won our last 2), and that we're far from being the best supported club in the SANFL (we're definitely in the bottom 2 or 3 for crowd numbers and overall number of supporters).....but 7 weeks into the season and we're yet to be on TV with no sign of that changing for a while.

I can see why 7 would focus on the top sides or those with a larger following, after all, they are in it to get ratings and I can't blame them for that. But didn't they say when they got the broadcast rights that every team would get somewhat of an equal coverage? So far that hasn't really been happening.

Re: 2014 State Game - SANFL v VFL @ Port Melbourne (Sat 31/5

Leigh Ryswyk - I've been a big fan of his and he has chopped the eagles up on more than one occasion. But has he been playing well enough this year to deserve a place in the team? He seems to have been well down on previous years.

I would also have thought Webb is lucky to be in the side given he has was out of West's side earlier in the year. Surely Baulderstone is more deserving of the second ruck spot?

The other player I think is lucky to be there is Bode.

Webb had a pre season of 3 weeks and played the first 2 weeks in the reserves. He wasn't in the reserves on form just fitness. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Re: Preliminary Final - Centrals v West

Full credit to West today. They were a determined, committed team and played the better footy. It's been an amazing turnaround this season from Central. After a poor start to the season we hung in there to beat South at Noarlunga to make the finals and then taking out Norwood and Port in consecutive weeks was a great effort. All doggies supporters should be proud and looking forward to next season.

Good luck to Westies next week. It will be tough against the Eagles who have looked good all year. 32 years is a long wait so hopefully you guys can do it!

Would have loved to be able to attend this grand final. But Sunday? First week of the school holidays too. No way.
I reckon the fact that it's on a Sunday will keep a few away.
I think the fact the AFL circus is still on will stop thousands more getting that extra footy fix the weekend after the AFL grandfinal.
Whatever they get today, you could add about an extra 10,000 for a proper Saturday grandfinal the weekend after the AFL has finished.

About time an attacking team won a Grand Final
Godden , should not give up on the defensive style
It won flags for Bassett and Warren
Took Bassett a loss to CD in a GF before the legs got the 3pete

The irony of todays game is I reckon WA made more mistakes and turnovers than the other finals they played in and won
The overwhelming possessions they had was enough to win

Fair to say after standing in the outer, watching ordinary footy, wooden spoons and near misses for 32 years I am so emotional at the moment I can bearly string a sentence together. Yelled my head off and have no voice but winning today makes it all worth while. Got to share a grand final victory with my two sons which is indescribable.

I'm so proud of these lads and where they came from last season. Was not a fan of the Mickan appointment but he certainly has made me eat my words. Well done to Mark.

No seriously, congratulations to West Adelaide. I did not believe the Eagles could be beaten this year, but it was clear from the start that West were on and the Eagles very much on the back foot. Very happy for Mark Mickan to get a flag after having Glenelg around the mark without the ultimate prize for a few years. Great for the West supporters; the 32 year drought is over.

We lead from siren to siren and played hard, contested football lead by Tuck, Schmidt and Porplyzia.

To go from 9th to 1st in one season (South's 8th to 1st in '64) is a stunning effort and the club's culture has changed in recent years, something started by Collins (who won the VFL flag today - coincidence?)

A win to be enjoyed by all players, support staff, members and supporters. Well done Bloods.
